OMG! Another Nintendo Consoles with New Innovations.

Is the future of the Nintendo console, in general going to be both mobile and home based?  They make hella money with the 3DS.  I believe it to be true.  The proof is in this video.  There is even a slot for 3DS games.  That or Nintendo is going back to cartridges for the Swtich and they tiny as hell.  Either way, I don't care what the system does or how it really operates.  It's 2016, you know the graphics are going to be just fine.  My hype lies in the games.  A new Zelda and a new Mario.  All we need a Samus to round things off.  I'm excited for the games on the Nintendo Switch.  Gimmie.

Capcom has just released it's mobile version of Street Fighter X Tekken. They've also uploaded a new video showing off some of it's features.

This looks well.... bad. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed SFxT on consoles and I also enjoyed Street Fighter Volt on the mobile, but this just looks terrible. Very tiny cast of characters none of which are from the recently released DLC characters. It was made for the iPad this time which makes the game look better, but I just don't know if it's worth it right now.

If you are interested you can pick the game up on sale for $2.99 which full price is at $4.99. Not a bad deal, as long as they continue support with free DLCupdates like they did for SF Volt.

Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!

Split! for the iPhone Review

By: choke Jun 24, 2012 | 3 Comments

A review of Split! for the iPhone.

Split! is a new action/strategy game from Touchy Interactive that I was recently provided to be able to review.  It was developed by Touchy interactive for use with the iPhone or iPad.

Not much to the story: two characters want to escape from some giant mega prison.  No real background on what they were doing in prison to begin with or any depth whatsoever.   

You control both characters.   Click on the one you want to move and draw a path to where you want them to go and they will go there.   There are spots of "cover" throughout the level where your character is safe as long as you stay behind it.  Guards patrol the area and if they see you they begin firing.  The main objective is to take cover and draw attention and fire from the guards while you then use the 2nd character to come up from behind or alongside the guards to kill them.   

Balancing action style gameplay with strategy can be tricky, and it's where I find the most fault with Split!   Oftentimes I knew exactly where one character should go to prepare myself for the 2nd, but had difficulty trying to drag the path to lead them to the specific spot I wanted and the next thing I knew my character was running right into the line of fire.  You do have the ability to cancel a run, but sometimes you need to run past several guards who will be firing upon you while you're trying to make it to cover and canceling in the middle is not an option.  I lost several games because of this and it became very frustrating.  Other times I would draw my path to a spot, and the character would zig or zag or run to the spot of cover and then move AWAY from cover for a second and get shot.   Needing to be completely precise on a touch and drag game on the iPhone is simply not the easiest thing to do.   On an iPad I'd guess it's easier to control with the larger screen   

I found the lack of variety in just about everything in the game to be disappointing.  Enemies always looked and acted the same, and all had the same guns.  The only real variety I saw in the game was that they started incorporating switches to open doors which did add a new element, albeit an expected and unexciting one, and I found myself getting bored of beating a level only to go to the next one to find little to no variety present.   Some differing enemies, guns for the players, or environmental obstacles would go a long way.   Also I know AI isn't exactly something to be expected in this type of game and there probably wouldnt even be a good way to implement it without it becoming a straight up action game, but sometimes it's laughable when you have one character drawing fire from 4 enemies, and the other is able to basically run circles around them without being detected.

I  found myself quickly lowering the volume of the background music.   Probably a personal preference but I didn't enjoy the drum n bass style music that sounded like the stuff I avoided in the early 2000s

Overall I think Split! has the potential to be a good game with some tweaks to the controls and some added variety.  I think the premise behind the gameplay is solid but there just isnt enough to it at this point to keep me coming back for more.  I'm going to give it a Rent it! rating in that it might be worth giving it a shot if there's a free version or maybe with some updates made in the future.  Not worth a purchase based solely on what they're offering so far.

Motorola Atrix smartphone is also a laptop

This is one of the coolest ideas I've seen in a while when it comes to mobile computing.

Smart phones have been playing games for years, but the small screen, while great for portability, is not so great for other things. This new phone from Motorola was shown at this years CES, now there's a video showing you what it can do besides play Need For Speed.

You can dock it to a keyboard/screen shell that looks like a laptop and use all the apps with a much bigger screen and a real keyboard, or dock it to a connector that has 3  USB and 1 HDMI out for use on your TV.

For those who only use computers for Email and Web browsing and casual gaming (it plays flash in addition to the game apps), this is really all you'd ever need.
